Hi Ianm,
> The results of the selection must be Boolean"
Sounds like you are doing this in a selection rule not a formula field.

I want to pass the Total from a Subreport footer SUM
You need to create a new formula and use this code there.  In the Field Explorer click on Formula then click the New button.

There's nothing wrong with the formula you've written, but as Pete said you have it in the wrong place.
